JANUARY



ROCK 'N' ROLL ANGELS

Thursday 12th January, 8pm, Free Entry

"The Rock n Roll Angels project is the brainchild of Shaun McCrindle, singer-songwriter with Glass Angel, and a former member of the Blue Aeroplanes.

Unlike the post-punk rock music of the other groups, Rock n Roll Angels' songs are rooted in acoustic music and are reflective and spacious. Joining Shaun in this venture is Johnny Westrup, a former singer-songwriter with New Acoustics.

Their songs are given added depth by Ed Burgess on drums and James Anderson on double bass. Expect a mellow, contemplative vibe - somewhere between Nick Drake and John Martin."

+ THE QUIET BEFORE

"Beautiful lo-fi songs in the vein of Bon Iver and Jeff Buckley but with a distinctly English aesthetic."
